I am a fan of Wetherspoon pubs but I am not going to be desperate to return to this one if in Banbury again. Not made to be welcome, the bloke serving couldn't even manage basic manners.

Typical Whetherspoon's pub with good value for money but since the last renovation, even better. I think it's more family friendly now. It's a must if you live in or visit Banbury.
